DANCERS

Our love and thanks to the dancers and their instructors who have offered their time and talent to help us celebrate our weekend of Greek culture through song and dance!

The Holy Cross folk dance groups participating in this weekend's festivities are:




PLAY ~ "ADVENTURES OF PERSEUS AND MEDUSA"

Based on Greek mythology.
Adapted for the stage by Alexandra Nemchik.
Production team: Helene Nemchik, Alexandra Nemchik, Gabrielle Nemchik, and Eva Canellos.

A beautiful but cruel woman named Medusa is turned into an evil monster who kills people by turning them to stone when they look at her. The brave hero Perseus saves the world by slaying the evil Medusa.

Act I: On an island near Crete / Poseidon's home on Mt. Olympus.
Act II: Argos, home of Perseus.
Act III: All over Greece / Argos.

A big thanks to our actors, directors and producers (parents!) for the hours upon hours of hard work! Break a PODI!
